Reason 78,627 why New Zealand is the best country in the universe are Jersey Benne potatoes.
I love everything about them. I love their taste, their smell, their look and texture and the fact they give me an excuse to say the word tuber. Yeah, go on you say it too, out loud even. Tuber.
I love that Jersey Bennes come in a box. It's like they are above being put in something as common as a plastic bag.
I love the fact they are bloody expensive. It means bus riding poor people can't afford them. More for me.
I love them because they are best friends with BBQ cooked food.
I love it that when you Google for Jersey Benne potatoes, only New Zealand websites appear*. The 6 billion suckers that live elsewhere on the planet are not living in God's Own Country and so miss out on such a fantastic veggie. Suckers!
I love it that after I eat so many of them that my stomach is so distended there is no way in hell I'd get a hop on, much less be capable of a hop on. And I love it that they are so spectacularly fantastic that I don't care I miss out on a hop on because of them.
Meh. I so haven't had the light, the location or the talent to get any adequate photos for weeks. I'm so down on the whole thing.
*I fully expect to rank number one for Jersey Benne potatoes in Google. This will be my hobby for the next few days.
